City flag

The orange logo was adopted in 1976. It evokes the tree of life, an open flower and a person with open arms. The three spheres represent ethnic diversity, and the three main ethnic groups at the time (French, English and Jewish), though today Saint-Laurent boasts citizens from 166 different countries. Beaudoin also reports this flag. This flag is now used as the Saint-Laurent borough flag.

Variant of the city flag

This is a variant of the Ville St-Laurent flag we have on the site. It was seen flying in front of a manufacture in the town itself. The design differ from the one we have in 3 ways:

  • red logo instead of orange
  • longer stem (but smaller size overall)
  • different ratio (it seemed identical to the Quebec flag that was flying next to it)
